Review: Bobbi Brown Oil free Even Finish Compact

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Hello guys!
Today I will be sharing my thoughts on the
 Bobbi Brown oil free Even Finish Compact make up.

After been still on the hunt for the perfect foundation, I decided to give this one a try.
I asked for a sample at the Macys where I work and I have been using it for about two and half weeks.
Break outs have been a really tough issue for me in the last 4 months.
I was really frustrated to have to go to work to a make up counter with blemishes all over my chin!
I was so self conscious about it :(
The foundation I was using before starting with Clinique was Make up forever Matte Velvet.
Since I was home with my son, I used to do my make up for FOTD’s or to go out every now and then. Break outs were not as often.
When I got hired at Macy’s I started doing my make up everyday and that is when my face just started breaking out all the time. I figured that make up forever was the reason of my break outs so I stopped using it and instead started the journey of trying different Clinique foundations.

Unfortunately, the one that I really liked (Acne Solutions) could not be matched perfectly.
However, I kept using it for a while because my acne was so bad and I knew the foundation had sacylic acid and it would help to dry the pimples faster.
Since I was not happy with the off color that Acne Solution was giving me I kept browsing and looking around until one day I stumbled with the Even Finish make up from Bobbi Brown.
                                       I saw that it was an oil free make up so I took the plunge to try it.                     
So far, I am really happy to say that I haven’t broken out. Like I mentioned in my last post, I am currently  using the Clinique Acne solutions treatment which I know is playing a big role on
 keeping everything under control.
This foundation is very creamy, easy to blend formula and it gives medium to full coverage.
The finish that it gives is a satin finish but I use a matte powder on top.
I really like that it does not feel heavy on my skin and it gives an “I am covered but it looks like skin"
I’ve been trying different brushes to apply it and so far I am getting best results with my MAC 109.
I apply first a layer using the MAC 109 and then I apply some more on problem areas
 buffing it with my MAC 181.
This Compact comes in 19 shades with .31 oz of product and is great for normal to oily skin types.

Now that I finally bought the compact, it comes with a sponge so I am looking forward to try i
t and see what results I am going to get.
Overall I am happy with this foundation and I will be updating you guys later on!
